don't think anybody is doing anything deliberate, but i do think the one number that should concern the obama forces is the fact that he is -- if rasmussen is correct, that far below 50% because historically the undecideds in the last weeks, indeed sometimes it's the last few days of an election, the undecided us usually shift against the incumbent simply because the incumbent is the one they know the most about, and therefore the incumbent is the one that has the edge in having people make up their minds one way or the other. i know in my own first race, i was well behind my opponent who was at 48%. in the last ten days, i said, look, after all the money he's spent if he's only at 48%, that means 52% of people want somebody else, and it turned out i won. he got 48 1/2. connell: president is 48 in the rasmussen overall, he's up 2. and also up in the gallup tracking poll. >> i would say i think romney has had a rough few weeks here and i think it is pretty clear that the polls are moving in the direction of the president in ohio and florida, pennsylvania, and so on, iowa. but this is

himself that was an inarticulate way of describing how we're worried in that stagnant obama economy more people are becoming dependent on economy. >> what could be better for the emotional stability of a presidential candidate than your running mate calling you inarticulate? never mind. paul ryan is the one key numbers guy. so let's hear him explain the tax policy. >> the cut in tax rates is lower -- all american tax rates -- >> how much does it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deductions. the first half, lowering the tax rates. does that cost $5 trillion? >> no, no. look, i won't get into a baseline argument with you. >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all the math. >> all right. you know what, mitt? you better put paul ryan away somewhere. send him to a sports bar somewhere in ohio. at least he can have a few beers with voters. he's got that going for him. who knows, it might help make inroads with that 9% deficit romney is facing against the president in the late
